Actually a well-produced high quality and charming 1950's commercial, but the product stinks. Really stinks up the place bad.
Oh, and download this commercial, it's nice.
EDIT: My original review had mocked a "critically acclaimed" show that has/had ended up on ABC-2 in the land down under.
Now for a change: Some (but not most) of you know I uploaded this under one of my rabbit-like accounts. The commercial is well-produced but seems laughable now. That said, it would be nice to see commercials done like this again, BUT for a completely different product. Maybe a beverage or snack. The product may be stupid, but there are some things to learn about how to produce amusing advertising from this.

As a kid of the 60's, I remember the various cigerette and anti-cigerette commerials being among the most clever, catchy, and fun to watch. Tarlton would rather "...fight than switch." 101's were a "silly millimeter longer", and a lone cigerette named "Johnny Smoke" rode the plains looking for smokers the bury on boot hill. ("Where are you a headin', Johnny Smoke...")
Yeah, the products sure did stink up the room, but the commercials were often the life of the party.
